Rugby

I have been treated for various injuries for many years by Craig throughout my Professional career with Leicester Tigers and the England team. The Ashleigh Clinic has excellent equipment and facilities which helped me make a quick return to full fitness. I would have no hesitation in referring any other professional sports men and women, friends and family.

Back in the day when I used to play professional rugby, Craig Mortimer was a huge help to me. I would regularly visit him before an England or Leicester game to get in top condition to perform.

Former England, British Lions and Leicester Tigers rugby player




I am truly grateful for the professional help I've had from Craig and the Ashleigh Clinic over the years that I have been coming for treatments. I have been a regular patient for many years thanks to rugby playing injuries as well as a non-sporting one. As a sportsman I wanted to get back to playing as soon as possible and the Ashleigh Clinic always managed to do that!

The nature of my injuries was always explained, and that helped me in my recovery and understanding in how to look after myself better in the future.

The staff at the Ashleigh Clinic have always provided a professional and friendly service, which is very much a reflection of the work ethics of the entire Clinic.

Perhaps the biggest compliment I can give is that I still use the Ashleigh Clinic even though I now live in London!

Thank you for your help over the years and, in the nicest possible way, I hope I won't be seeing you soon!

Basketball

After having surgery on my right knee, I was told by my doctor that it would take 3-4 months before I would gain a full range of motion in my leg. After a few sessions with Craig Mortimer at the Ashleigh Clinic he was able to help me cut that time-line in half. With multiple years of experience in dealing with sports injuries and some of the best equipment in the country, the Ashleigh Clinic is by far the best Physiotherapy Clinic in Leicester and maybe the East Midlands. Besides getting professional treatment for your injuries, the one thing that stands out more is the friendly environment that makes the process of dealing with injuries much easier. Relax and let the Ashleigh Clinic heal your injuries.

Of all the recruiting I have done during my time at the Riders having Craig Mortimer on "our team" has been the most valuable.

His ability to keep our players on the court has been instrumental in our success.

In my 10 years involved in professional basketball in the UK, both as a player and a coach, there has been no physio better at what he does than Craig Mortimer.

His ability to get players healthy and ready to play is second to none.

Boxing

I was suffering with a long-term problem of tendonitis in both feet. Craig Mortimer of the Ashleigh Clinic was recommended to me to see if he could help. Thanks to his knowledge, expertise and specialist equipment, I was back on the road, running up to 10 miles a day no problem.

Later on, I suffered a hand injury after a big fight. Same as before I went to see Craig. He told me the problem was a tendon in the back of my hand. Thinking this could be a long term injury, Craig started to work on it and I was back in the gym within 4 weeks. Craig is an excellent physio who knows his work to the fullest and resolves the problem.

Cricket

I have used the Ashleigh Clinic for well over 20 years . Throughout my time as a Cricketer for Leicestershire and England the demands on physical conditioning have grown, plus the quest for all-round excellence has risen dramatically. Thankfully, over the years I have had access to numerous physios at Leicestershire County Cricket Club, all with their own qualities.

While club physios come and go, I've always had the Ashleigh Clinic to turn to and use, from treatment and advice, to specialist post-op treatment and care. I wouldn't have bee able to play at my best for many years if it weren't for Craig and his world-class facility at the Ashleigh Clinic.

I first met Craig and received my first treatment at the Ashleigh Clinic when I was 11 years old. He helped me to recover from a stress fracture in my lower back, which at the time was obviously a major concern as I was desperate to be a professional cricketer.

I'm pleased to say that I got that opportunity a few years later and in 1996 Leicestershire CCC won the County Championship. Craig had played an instrumental part in that achievement as he was working as the club's physio and it was fantastic for me to share that moment with him after all the work he had put in to help me get there and stay fit.

Now after 26 years he has become a great friend and is still the first person I consult if ever I have an injury concern. I am pleased to see that the experiences he has gained from working at the Leicester Tigers and at the County has made him one of the leading physiotherapists in the county.

The treatment facilities at the Ashleigh Clinic are outstanding, and the environment and ethos there is professional and focused towards complete rehabilitation.

If you are looking for first class treatment from a Clinic which is the first choice for many professional sports athletes, then Craig's your man!

When I returned from the champions league in October 2011 I was "between clubs" for a month. During this time, Craig at the Ashleigh Clinic provided me with outstanding support and treatment to ensure that when I reported back to Notts CCC my physical condition was the best it had ever been, and the injury which had threatened to rule me out of the tournament was well and truly behind me. The Ashleigh Clinic balances first class treatment with a very relaxed, light-hearted environment and I would recommend it highly to anyone.
